Jack and Jill of America is celebrating its 80th anniversary. It is the nation’s oldest African American family organization, founded in 1938 with the specific mission of nurturing future African American leaders by stimulating the growth and development of children through educational, cultural, civic, recreational, health and social programs inspired by mothers. Through its nearly 250 chapters organized in seven regions across the United States, the organization consists of more than 40,000 family members, which includes mother members, fathers and children ages two through 19.

Jack and Jill of America chapters also support non-profit organizations through its philanthropic arm, the Jack and Jill of America Foundation which is among the first foundations established by African-American families in the United States. Since its founding in 1968, the foundation has granted millions of dollars to worthy causes supporting children and families. Mrs. Brown is active in several organizations devoted to serving the community, including the Links Inc.
